** spoiler alert ** As you can tell I basically only read sports books. Mainly by Carl Deuker.
This book is the best book I have ever read. Mick Johnson started kindergarden late so he is a year older than everyone. His dad was a great running back in college but then screws everything up in the NFL. Mick's dad tells him that he didnt play in the NFL because of some ankle injury. Mick decides to look on the internet to see if his dad is telling the truth. Mick finds out he wasn't. There is a gym called Popeye's and Mick's dad owns it. Mick starts working with a personal trainer named Peter Volz. Mick is on protein shakes and pills, when Peter tells him about gym candy(steriods). Mick starts taking them and everything is going fine, life and football. Mick stops taking the first kind of steriods which are D-bol when he starts growning breast. Peter tells him about the injection, then Mick decides to take that. Just steriods take over his life. Mick wants to be the best football player he can. When he is a sophmore there is this 8th grader Dave Kane who Mick thinks is better the he is. So Mick quits taking steriods until he is so concered about losing his starting job he takes the most powerful steriods there are. When he takes them he feels so strong, but then comes the emotional roller coaster. One minute he will be fine the next he wants to kill someone(that is actually a true fact). Mick's best friend finds out that Mick is on steriods and Drew confronts Mick about it. They met at this lake and Mick has a gun. Drew says he is going to tell coach, that is when Mick theartens that he will shot Drew. Drew just keeps on walking, then Mick shots himself. Mick doesn't kill himself though because he twitch right before he pulled the trigger. That is all I am going to say but READ THIS BOOK!
